District court's denial of defendant's petition for habeas relief, claiming that the way in which the bystander venire was selected violated his constitutional right to have his jury selected from a fair cross section of the community, is affirmed as the sheriff exercised his responsibility under the Illinois bystander statute by rounding out a small portion of the venire by calling upon supervisors in government offices to furnish potential jurors.
